The European Games is an incredible event for their scale and combines a huge number of various things that should encourage you to come to Minsk to see everything with your own eyes.

  • Belarus has already held the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2018, as well as the World Ice Hockey Championship in 2014. The European Games 2019 will be included in this magnificent top three and will add another paragraph of the modern history of Belarus. Today, anyone can become part of this story, just visiting the event and seeing everything with their own eyes: tickets, that cost from 2 to 20 euros for guests of the country, will take you to the world of new discoveries.

  • The main difference between the European Games 2019 and the previous ones that were held in Baku, and from the very same Olympic Games, is the uniqueness of the approach. To create a network through which the whole system of the Games will be managed (from software to design of the mobile application and the official website), only Belarusian specialists were involved. The form of volunteers was sewed according to the drawings of the Belarusian stylist Yulia Latushkina at the Belarusian company “Solo-Pinsk”. That is, all the beauty that guests of the country will see is created by masters of their work, of which the whole Belarus is proud.

  • Even the most remote corners of the capital are being transformed to the European Games 2019: the athletes and their teams will be accommodated in the comfortable rooms of the Sport Village, next to which a new passenger terminal will be built; competitions are held on the territory of many sports facilities, the list of which includes the famous “Minsk Arena” and the recently reconstructed Dynamo stadium.

The opening ceremony will take place on June 21 at the Dynamo stadium and will resemble a grandiose music festival: a team of talented craftsmen of their craft will turn the site into a chamber hall, give a concert and arrange a real light show. It is planned that the ceremony will last about 2 hours, and its scope will be able to impress even the most jaded fans of such events. Sport is a real art that can be expressed in hundreds of ways: this is what we are going to demonstrate this summer!

  • Sports events of the magnitude, like the European Games 2019, are not held to find the best of the best and praise the achievements of a particular country. If you delve into the history of the global version of this event — the Olympic Games — you can find out that there was a temporary truce in Greece during the war period to hold competitions. Now, in our turbulent time, it is more important than ever to be united and to maintain peace between nations.
